Re: Recent outdoor family photo shoot.

Yes, your composition needs work, but then so does your posing!

Take a look at image no. 5, who looks most relaxed in that photo with a more natural stance? It's the lady on the far right with her hand on her hip, and the reason is that she has her weight on one leg.

As a general rule it's best to turn people to 30-45 degrees and ask them to put their weight on one leg (models usually put their weight on the leg furthest from the camera). Obviously rules are there to be broken, but know it before you break it!

I've made some videos on family and group posing on my web site if you're interested

Cheers,
Bernie
